Ponta Delgada is found on Sao Miguel, the largest of the islands that make up the Azores, Portugal. With stunning lakes, green fields and forest-covered volcanic peaks, the scenery here is out of this world. With its century old architecture and cobbled streets - along with its modern marina, shopping and world class restaurants, San Miguel offers something for everyone. Areas of interest include 'Lagoa do Fogo' (Fire Lake), ‘Sete Cidades', a volcanic crater; which contains two lakes, one deep blue, and the other emerald green. And, not forgetting one of the most beautiful parks in Portugal, ‘Terra Nostra" Park'. A nature lover's paradise, in Sao Miguel there's the opportunity to go whale watching, swimming with dolphins, bird watching or hiking. If you want to laze in the sun or have a dip in the sea, there are several beaches dotted across the island.
You'll come across traditional handicrafts on the island, including wickerwork baskets, colourful ceramics and clay pottery. As it's the only place to grow tea in Europe, the local tea 'Cha Gorreana' is definitely worthy of a purchase.
The local currency in the Azores is the Euro. Ponta Delgada is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+1).
